Arsenal Invincibles’ secret weapon explains why Liverpool will not repeat feat

Currently Liverpool are the only team left in the Premier League that haven’t lost any game so far. With 42 points the Reds are leading the table after Manchester City lost 2-0 to Chelsea.

City boss Pep Guardiola insisted that he only wants his players to be champions rather than invincibles which could be the reason why they lost at Chelsea.

That is the verdict of David Elliott,who played the role of sports psychologist when Arsenal won the title unbeaten in 2004.

He revealed that setting targets is the key to building continued success.

“I think what happened in 2004 was the greatest achievement because the Premier League is a marathon and the ultimate test,” said Eliott speaking to Mirror Sport.

“It’s all about having a vision. Jurgen Klopp has a great team and maybe they can do it. But it’s so difficult which is proved by the fact only one team has managed it.

“City are a great team but even the most competitive players must have a challenge to make sure they aspire to greatness. If they have won the title once, what inspires them the next season? That’s the key. Stretch goals are something to aim for.

“When Manchester City lost on Saturday, I sent Arsene a message. He came back with a nice message telling me he was pleased I still believed.”
